Criminal Justice College Professor Says He’s Antifa, Teaches ‘Future Dead Cops’
John Jay College Professor Tweets About Dead Cops
New York City – John Jay College Professor Michael Isaacson may work at a criminal justice college, but he’s firmly anti police. In tweets he called his students “future dead cops.”
The professor, who teaches in the criminal justice college’s economics department, started his tweets on August 23rd on his @VulgarEconomics Twitter account.
In one Tweet he said, “Some of y’all might think it sucks being an anti-fascist teaching at John Jay College but I think it’s a privilege to teach future dead cops.”
When asked about his tweet by New York Daily News, Isaacson told them, “Oh that shit? Everybody dies.”
His “everybody dies” excuse is pretty weak, but he seems to be enjoying trolling. Another tweet he made later on August 23rd says, “jokesaboutmystudentsgettingexecutedintherev dot tumblr dot com” That website features hardcore pornography.
While being interviewed by New York Daily News, Isaacson said that he tries to talk people out of being police officers, and suggested that it was a job that exploited minorities who needed jobs.
“Unfortunately, most of my students don’t have the luxury of a wide variety of career options,” he said. “They are from low income backgrounds and are mainly people of color. Most of them are just looking to get a job with a salary.”
After the tweets gained the attention of Fox News, they invited him on Tucker Carlson’s show (video below,) where he defended Antifa’s violence.
The NYC PBA released a statement which said, “It’s is absolutely outrageous that an individual who holds and expresses these views could be employed by an academic institution, much less one that count and overwhelming number of New York City police officers as among its students, alumni, and faculty members.”
PBA president called for Professor Michael Isaacson to be immediately fired.
John Jay College has refused to comment on the issue, stating only that a statement would be released later.
